Our topic this half term is: Treasure Island
We are launched our topic with a Pirate Day on Tuesday 6th June. We all dressed up as pirates and learnt about life aboard a pirate ship. We shall be learning about some famous pirates that used to roam the seas. We shall also be learning about islands and how to read a map using symbols. We shall explore creating our own treasure maps.
In Science this term:
We are learning about Ourselves and other animals. We shall be learning to identify and locate parts of their body, including sense organs; use their observations to point out differences between humans and other animals and communicate observations and measurements in a variety of different ways.
Here are some useful websites:
In Maths this term:
We are learning to solve problems involving time, weight, capacity. We shall be exploring fractions of a shape or amount specifically halves and quarters. WE shall be exploring turns, half turns and quarter turns. We shall be applying our knowledge of number to help us solve problems, explaining our answers.
In English this term:
We will be continuing to write sentences that are consistently correctly punctuated with full stops and capital letters, and will be thinking about improving our word choice. We shall be learning to orally tell a pirate story about Pirate Pete. We shall use this to help us write our own version of the story. We shall continue with our daily handwriting sessions where we are practicing forming all of our letters clearly and correctly.
PE for Year 1 classes is on a Wednesday and Friday this half term.
PE is a very important part of our curriculum. Please make sure that your child has suitable kit and sensible PE shoes in school every week otherwise they will have to wear spare kit. Earrings must be taken out or taped over.
How you can support your child at home:
– Listen to your child read at home regularly.
– Support them to count forwards and backwards in ones and twos to 20, and help them to recognise their numbers up to 100. Make sure that their numbers are written the right way round.
– Support them with practicing their Spelling Bee words.
– Support/test them on their Mental Maths challenge booklet.
There are many sources of support on the internet. Some of the websites we recommend are:
We hope they are helpful to you and help you support your child’s learning.
